Making a Digital Edition - Basic Skills and Technologies


Intensive 5-day entry level hands-on course on making digital editions and managing digital collections. In this course, participants will acquire a set of basic computer skills to share and reuse images through IIIF (using Raspberry Pis); transcribe the texts on these images in TEI-XML; and prepare their transcriptions for the web.

Target group: Undergraduate (BA3), graduate (MA) and postgraduate (PhD, postdoc) students as well as professionals in the field of Humanities.


In the past few decades, digital editing and digitisation of archival documents have been rapidly gaining prominence. Aiming to cater for both of these branches of Digital Humanities, our summer school offers an in-depth, hands-on curriculum to familiarise students with basic and more advanced tools in the field. Apart from acquiring a set of technical skills, our programme includes the more general practical guidelines on how to make a digital edition.

Check the website for a more detailed daily programme.


3 ECTS credits are awarded upon successful completion of the programme.

Optional: upgrade to 6 ECTS credits upon completion of an additional exercise after the summer school.
